Suzuki GT380 keeps cutting out

I have a problem with my 1976 Suzuki GT380. When riding bike pulls well but after about 10 mins it just dies. No power at all. Starts again fine. Have checked battery teminals, all wiring, new ignition switch, new battery, cleaned generator and brushes. All ok. This bike is fitted with an electronic ignition. Any ideas please?

I have had my suzuki 2 years and hardly had any probs i was riding home the other night and i smelt a burning smell next thing all the electrics cut out and aboout a mile further down the road the bike...


Have to check the voltage regulator for burned wires or yellowed connectors,, also looking over every wire on the bike you can get to would be a good idea,, something could just have rubbed thru the insulation on a wire resulting in a dead short,,, look carefully for the damaged wire,, It could easily be a voltage regulator
We just replaced the reg on a SV650 and that was the trouble,

Hi mody
check fuel flow from tank by sucking vacuum hose if fuel runs through if not inspect tap. but if yes pull out carbs and check float needle housing strainer. if is free from particles replace ignition coils and pulse generator.

Why does bike stall while riding in hot weather or in cooler weather after riding for an hour or so?


Hi, Christina and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery, should have 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a "LOAD" test if necessary.
2. Failed alternator/generator and or voltage regulator.
3. Loose or corroded battery terminals and or cables especially the "NEGATIVE" cable, look for loose, corroded, or broken connectors inside the cable harness at "BOTH" ends.
4. Failed main circuit breaker or ignition switch, check for loose connections and continuity.
5. Failed system and or ignition relay, check for continuity.
6. Failed ignition coil, ignition/electronic module.
7. Failed CKP, CPS, CMP, MAP, TPS, or BAS sensor, corroded, loose or broken wire connector pins/sockets.
8. Throttle cables and or idle speed improperly adjusted hot idle speed should be 950 RPM to 1000 RPM.
9. Fuel tank empty.
10. Fuel tank contaminated with ethanol sludge.
11. Water or dirt in the fuel system, or clogged filter.
12. Restricted, blocked or kinked fuel line.
13. Faulty fuel pump.
14. Faulty pressure regulator.
15. Faulty or clogged fuel injectors.

I have an 05 with the same problem. Sounds like your STVA went out. Do you still have your butterflies wired open? I know how to repair the stva fixed mine, and saved hundreds....if your still on this post email me so we can get our bikes fixed. also check your kick stand sensor! This can malfunction and cause same stalling problems.

Suzuki GT380 coils hot


Hi. I had a similar problem on an old Suzuki GS550. It use to start and run for a set time and then cut out and would not start until it cooled down for about 4/5 minuets. Then it would start and do the same, and the coils seemed to get quite hot. In my case it was the rectifier. Hope this is of help to you. Regards Tony.

Place in gear and bike dies


If your kickstand is down it will die on you.
